Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Timmy Tiptoes is a young guy to have been through so much and still be smiling! At less than a year old he was abandoned. Hit by a car, leg healed wrong and ended up on the PTS list at the shelter. Well he is just one of those special guys that the volunteers decided were not gonna let him go without a fight! Timmy was a puppy for gosh sakes! He was posted for rescue only because of his injuries. The volunteers got Davis to agree to repair his leg if he could find rescue. The rest is obvious! We at Whisker's Tails and Ferals always have a sweet spot for one so in need of help, love and care. So Timmy got his surgery and came to us on a sunny Saturday. Timmy had 8 weeks of crate rest, lots of good food and a sort of quiet time to recover. Timmy had no idea why he didn't get to come out and run around with the other dogs! Now he is all better, leg is healed, he is scarred from the accident, but his attitude is sassy and he is definitely full of himself and in charge. Timmy is also the smallest dog here in my home. He bullies the Great Pyrenees Male here (he is very used to the bologna of a Chihuahua) and any other dog he feels he can get away with. Timmy still sleeps separately from the others as he now feels the bathroom with a baby gate is his, so I spoil him all I can. This makes him a little brat, which is my favorite kind of Chihuahua. Since there are so many, I figure there are so many people that like the little bratty kind too. Wanna meet Timmy Tiptoes? He is unique and very entertaining. He is also very loving and pretty obedient. Come see this pup on Saturdays during adoption event hours. Please email Linda at lbredfire@sbcglobal.net or call WT&F's Dog Team voicemail 707-812-9030 to get a jump on the process, ask questions, and/or to confirm they will be there. This dog comes spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested negative, and more with an adoption fee/donation to Whiskers, Tails and Ferals in Napa, CA.

More About Chihuahua Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: French Bullhuahua
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: French Bulldog / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Ace has bunny fur and due to an old injury can hop like one. He uses his rear leg but not always. His foster mom has manipulated it a lot and it doesn't seem to be painful. Ace was very under-socialized but has become a cuddle buddy at bedtime and sleeps on her shoulder. He has free run of the house and seems to be good on his potty skills. Due to his leg, he squats and uses potty pads when his Fostermom is gone too long working to expect a small dog to hold it without bursting. He is not a chewer but enjoys dental treats at night. Very gently guy. Ace had less than 24 hours left at the shelter in Sacramento when we pulled him. What a gem he is! Fostering him has given us a chance to watch him blossom! If you want a quiet small dog and willing to give him time to warm up Ace is a good choice! He would enjoy a quiet home with adults, or maybe older kids instead of young ones being the best choice if you have children. He loves vanilla yogurt off a spoon. He is a total gentleman!

Now with some work, she is happy to come and sleep next to me, sit in my lap and get attention. She still needs some work so patience is the word for Hannah. No young children for her at this time.

She is very elegant and once out of the Yolo County shelter she is kicking up her heels with joy! Very friendly girl. Very girly. Probably would love her nails painted!! Dora was put for rescue because she was sort of shy at the shelter. She did fine with the staff once out of her kennel and cuddled with one of the ladies in the office. Dora is still young and we think kids over 12 would be best. IF kids are really little dog savvy that might work. She is friendly with the other dog we pulled and likes to spend time with her. Dora is not just another Chihuahua at all. She may have some in her but she is lovely!!! You can meet her most Saturdays at the Napa Petco Adoption events.

This could be the babysitter you have been looking for and a running partner for you! Chanel lives with kids ranging from 2 to 7 year old and spends her afternoons entertaining and playing with them. "Chanel's" children love her and Chanel loves her kids. Check out the photo of her teaching herself to climb the play structure, now that is true motherly love! True to her breed, she is smart and eager to please. Just give her a little lovin to see those beautiful brown eyes gazing up at you with total devotion. Chanel is a people dog and loves to make new friends. While she has basic obedience fairly well mastered, we recommend training with all our medium and large dogs, you will find her in the top of her class. Chanel does have a past....she was used as a backyard breeder. Three litters later a concerned, insistent and devoted to the breed neighbor talked the owner into surrendering her to rescue. Now Chanel is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and truly wonderful! Ready for her forever home, she would prefer to be an only dog or at least the only female dog. She thinks it is great fun to chase cats and will keep your property free and clear of squirrels, rodents and anything else fun to chase. Chanel is house-trained, crate trained, fair on a leash, barks appropriately and meant to be a member of the family.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). THIS IS YEAR 3 OF LIBBY IN RESCUE. Libby has been in rescue far too long. Having been thru so much in her short life it is past time she finds her forever home. It breaks our hearts to have her passed by over and over at the adoption events. Hit by a car, patched up by a shelter vet, terribly thin and injured a few days later she popped out 4 puppies! Libby Lou was barely out of puppyhood before she had her own puppies. The shelter volunteers were surprised if not shocked but thrilled to take the extra efforts to find a rescue willing to take her in. Whiskers, Tails and Ferals opened their arms and brought Libby Lou and her 4 pups to the Napa Valley. With time to ween her babies and recover from her injuries, Libby gained strength and trust in the Cassidy foster home. Now with her babies adopted, the eye-removal surgery well behind her, Libby feels the job as a mama is done. She nearly kicks up her paws she is so happy and feeling great! Libby made some beautiful puppies, worked hard to eat enough to keep them well fed and growing strong. Libby has strong work ethics, she must with her history. A bit protective, she will bark at someone she doesn't know, just to make sure that new person knows she has her one eye on them. Doesn't take too long or too many treats to win her over. Kids? Well over 10 would be best. Cats? Absolutely loves to ignore them. She loves to play with dogs about her size but does very well with the giant male Pyrenees she lives with. Also loves the small backyard she has to run around in and adores her chew bones and those of every other dog that leaves their chew unattended for even a second. She likes to hide them under her bed or under the pillow on the sofa. I found 5 of them in just one night. To see Libby now, happy and feeling great makes me realize how much better she feels. She is ready to go! If you think Libby Lou would be the perfect dog to complete your family then email Linda at lbredfire@sbcglobal.net. Libby attends the Saturday adoptions at the Petco."
